Besides Haditha

It’s been a bad week for American war criminals. Yesterday, a 20 year old Marine was sentenced to 18 months for taking part in kidnapping and killing an unarmed Iraqi man. The day before that, an Army specialist plead guilty to raping and murdering a 14-year-old Iraqi girl. That makes a total of at least 16 U.S. military personnel who have been convicted of illegally killing Iraqis since the war began. And we have yet to hear whether the Marine Corps will bring charges against its soldiers accused of massacring 24 Iraqis in Haditha last November.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
